Round about: Hip, Sciatica & Knee

Subjects for the workshop:

  • palpation and assessment of mobility
  • what happens in an inflamed joint? - and how can we treat it?  
  • hip pains - wear and tear or muscle tensions?
  • sciatic pain
  • testing and treating the piriformis muscle
  • testing and treating the psoas muscle
  • sciatica and disc herniation
  • acute sciatica technique
  • precise muscle reflexes on the feet
  • nerve reflexology for hip and knee innervation
  • general relaxation technique for the hip and knee
  • simple excercises
  • special joint reflex areas on the lower leg
  • analysis and correction of posture
  • groin injuries and herniation
  • goal directed treatment scheme
  • osteoarthritis - an overused diagnosis?

Recurring hip or sciatic pains are very common. Often with sciatica, the nerve is irritated because of pressure from the piriformis or psoas muscles. With the proper techniques this situation can easily and quickly be changed.

For reflexologists the sciatic nerve is of special interest, because this nerve conveys all pressure and pain information from the feet towards the central nervous system.

Both hip and knee problems have a complex nature and can be difficult to deal with, especially if they involve degenerative changes, but often they are cause by muscular tensions which respond well to reflexology and excercises.

The treatment sequences shows all the techniques we teach in the workshop.

In Touchpoint’s continuing education classes we primarily present techniques from classical and nerve reflexology, and a few selected body techniques.

Towards the end of the course, we discuss the work sequences, which, built on our clinical experiences, is meant as an inspirational tool and a way to remember the new techniques.

Round about Painful Joints


Dorthe and Peter took a complicated subject like anatomy and made it very easy to understand as well as remember. They're phenonemal instructors that take necessary time with you as an individual to show you exactly where and how to work on your clients. This is easily one of the best reflexology classes I have taken.

Peter and Dorthe presented the most organized and professional training class I have ever attended in my adult life. As a 46-year-old veteran I have been through many classes from military training, to underwater welding, to different types of healing modalities. I was very impressed with the work Peter and Dorthe are doing. Thank you for the wealth of information I will be putting to valuable use. Cheers.

Peter and Dorthe are internationally respected leaders in reflexology; both as practitioners and teachers. I encourage reflexologists everywhere to expand their theoretical horizons and integrate the hands-on techniques from this workshop in their daily practice. You and your clients will be happy with the results!
